“Best pizza around town”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

Our first visit to a restaurant before checking into our resort in La Fortuna and were not disappointed. We had salad and pizza and a fantastic view of the volcano. Dinner there one evening had nice ambiance but the entrees we ordered were mediocre. I would stick to the pizza which is great!!

“Good Food in Pleasant Atmosphere”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

We stopped for lunch here on a recent trip through the Arenal area and were not disappointed with our choice. It is a pleasant restaurant set back among the trees off the road a few yards. The service was very friendly and attentive and prices were reasonable. A bit more than local soda prices but our meals were well prepared, well presented and it was a relaxing atmosphere. This restaurant is about 5 kms outside of Fortuna but if you're driving through the area and want a nice break it's well worth a stop. The casado was very good and a pasta dish also very nice.

“Best Pizza in Costa Rica”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

This is the only place we found in Costa Rica that used Mozzarella cheese on the pizza. That makes all the difference. Que Rico's pizza was much better than others. We liked it so much we came back a second time. We also had several of the chicken dishes. The BBQ chicken and Tamarindo chicken were both incredible. They also have good fruit smoothies. It was not crowded either night we were there.

“Great Pizza!”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

Why pizza in Costa Rica? After eating beans, rice and plantains for a few days; brick oven baked pizza and beer is great! My son had some ice cream which he enjoyed as it was a HOT day.

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

Had dinner here and it was excellent! Perhaps the best Italian of our 2 week stay in CR. Ceviche was supreme as were the other dishes. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, and excellent service while being reasonably priced. Definitely recommend!
